To Close

Post by Amelie on Mon Dec 12 2016, 22:11

I've never had this problem before...How can i get my youngest girl Lexi to move away from me during walks..When we are all walking all lovely to heal, no pulling but she is to close she is rubbing/hitting the side of my legs and she is knee high so she hits the back of my knee or rubs against it and you know what its like its like you buckle from it and i kick her so many times or my knee collides with her head, i just can't seem to move her away, I've thought about threading the lead through a pole to keep her at a distance -like the dog catching poles- but that seems weird to me...i don't want to step on her or kick her or fall any more it hurts us both. Any help appreciated.

Have you thought about using a clicker to teach her specifically to stand, then walk, a couple of feet away from you? It might take a few sessions but I don't see why it shouldn't work.

She has the lead room to move away and i hold my arm out to move her but i can't do that the entire way, I just don't to confuse her..heal but don't heal..stay close but not that close.

I think you can do that with the clicker, by teaching her to look for her click-treat reward for stepping away from you then building up to walking that step away from you. You'll probably need to break it into tiny steps to start off with as she'll not have the faintest idea what you're on about, but I would expect that she'll get the idea over a few sessions.
